    Would a different box make my 12 hit harder? (or sound better?

    Well I currently running an eclipse 8812 dvc woofer, rated at 500rms, giving it 600. Its in a box that is 30widex15tallx 13.25 deep, 35hz filled with poly. Would say upping my box size or changing the tuning (new box obviously) make the sub sound any better. I do get some tinsel slap at full tilt but with a sub that has 1.5in one way excursion its hard to avoid.

    Size really isnt an issue since I am now in a station wagon, I just want to get the most out of the woofer without buying new stuff (I would LOVE to get 2-3 of these, but they are IMPOSSIBLE to locate anymore)

    Why not, It was recommended when I first set this up (a few years back, still going strong) It seems to make a difference but if there are problems with it its quite easy to remove.

    There's no problem with it if you're using it for the right reasons.

    What do you want buy asking if it will sound better? Louder? Lower? Tighter?

    A bit louder since it handles full volume with no clipping even remotely, however I have a feeling that it wont be possible for me to get much more out of this. Its plenty tight and lows do leave something to be desired, however it IS a 12 so lows wont be its specialty
